The Brooklyn Latin School Reviews

210 reviews

The Brooklyn Latin High school was distinct due to its investment in the IB program which most NYC high schools fail to offer. It allowed students to take college level courses for an open opportunity to earn college credits. The school offered a diverse variety of classes including Latin, Greek, and theater which are courses not common in other high schools. Moreover, the teachers at this school demonstrate a huge determination to help students better their education. They constantly invest time after school such as office hours for extra tutoring. Despite its vast investment in education, the school lacks funding therefore it cannot afford a large range of programs or clubs. The clubs and activities within the school are highly limited and thus fail to cater to every student. I think with more government funding towards the school, they can invest in more support for things outside of solely academics and will overall, improve the community of the school.

This is the smallest specialized high school with around 900 students total. If you like intimacy between teachers and your pupils this is definitely the school for you. However, this school focuses on public speaking including classwide seminars and declamations. These assessments teach you the skills to form unique, persuasive and clear arguments. If you want to be a political figure or lawyer I would recommend this school. If you are really shy or have stage fright this is not a good school for you to attend. This school participates in the International Baccalaureate program. In other schools families would have to pay around 1200 dollars for their children to participate in the program, however, this school pays for each student's participation. This causes the school to have disadvantages. Most of the school's funding goes towards the students' education, and as a result heating, air conditioning and the overall maintenance of the building is poor.
The Brooklyn Latn School is definitely a great school, considering how eager teachers are willing to work with students. Although the majority of the school is one floor, it doesn't really matter because students need to constantly go up and down the stairs. One thing we don't have,however, is a library. In addition, students aren't allowed to go outside which kind of lacks our freedom. But other than that, The Brooklyn Latin School is great!
